If you're buying a house or thinking of renovating yours, this post is for you! Some desirable items or functions in a home are obvious, maybe they're luxuries or even conveniences you currently live without and can't wait to have (this was me lusting after a washer and dryer after living the NYC apartment life for a decade!). Other things you desire might be an upgrade on your home decor, such as eyeing up neon signs from a website like NeonMama, or choosing some new house plants. There are other less well known but amazing upgrades and improvements out there that you may want to consider when buying a house, especially if you're planning to build or renovate. You may have never even heard of some of these things. For example, you might never have thought of the possibility of getting a custom pool building in your yard. Simply put, you don't know what you don't know, which is why I've put together this great list of must-haves for your dream home (compiled from lots of research on the web and many Facebook threads)!
